Programs were operated to address flood effects

This preview shows page 5 - 6 out of 6 pages.

Programs were operated to address flood effects before and after Hurricane Sandy (Federal Emergency Management Agency, 2014). However, when the effects of the disasters can be controlled, people build things like dams and diversion canals. Flood waters can also be diverted to grounds that absorb water like the vineyards and orchard in California which can be flooded and not damage crops (Charles, 2017). River and coastal defenses are also built to prevent the water sources from flooding. Other ways of preventing effects of floods include the building of self-closing flood barriers and temporary perimeter barriers. Another strategy is resilience. This involves the building of structures in designs that will tolerate flooding and minimize its effects. For expel, exemplary drainage systems and homes on stilts.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
